I watched this a couple of Saturday’s ago by myself when Lay had to work. I’d worked especially had during the week day evenings to get chores done, and have a real day off. While I did wind up having to trim a rather large and tall hedge we have on one side of the house. But this was a nice way to spend a quiet Saturday afternoon.

Movie lives through Vaughn and Wilson. Both show an easy performance and want the audience to just simply have a good time.

The Story is nothing spectacular. If you liked “Meet the Fockers”, you’re gonna like this one as well.

Its the actors, who make the difference. Vaughn is hilarious and proofs, that he’s much better in comedies than in “serious” movies. Wilson plays himself (as in every one of his movies) and scores a good 2nd place.

Walken is just Walken and thats worth half the ticket. The girls are gorgeous, especially Rachel McAdams. The?movie is?good fun. It is not an new invention of the genre, but?it is well cast.
